Inhaltsangabe: Nearing her one-hundredth birthday, and facing the closure of the mental institution where she's spent most her adulthood, Roseanne relates her astonishing life to psychiatrist Dr Grene. Told through their respective journals, the story that emerges is at once shocking and deeply beautiful. Exquisitely written, it is the story of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance, and yet marked still by love, passion and hope.
